Hello, friends! I know it’s been awhile. I hope you’ll forgive me for that. I have been both busy and not busy. I could make excuses but I won’t. I just hope you’ll be happy to join me as I … Continue reading Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I have another review for you guys today! I was looking at the website Netgalley the other day because used to use the website a fair bit until a few months ago. At that time I’d requested and received a couple books I ended up not finishing cause I didn’t really like them. Since I didn’t finish them, I also didn’t review them. Which if you’ve ever used Netgalley, you know is a bad thing. The whole point is to receive advanced copies of books in exchange for reviews. So, I haven’t shown my face around that website in awhile. 😉 But decided to go back, because I really likd it! I thought I’d try to make myself seem like less of a schmuck by downloading a couple “read now” books (these are books you don’t need the publisher’s approval to receive. They are there for the downloading if you have an account with Netgalley) and review those, so publishers know I’m back in the game.
Anyway, long story short, the first book I chose was Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg, the same author who write the Paper Magicians trilogy. I really want to read those books too, but that’s another topic. This book was listed as an adult fantasy novel, which seemed interesting, and I also love the cover. The description made this book sound whimsical and magical. Sort of a fun fairytale type of story. It’s about a woman who has no memory of her past or heritage, but can bake emotions into her pastries. She can make you feel strong, loved, happy, hopefully, and lots of other things by infusing her magic into your morning muffin. Now, I’m a small-time baker, so I loved this concept from the beginning. If you’d like to read the entire book synopsis, click here for the Goodreads page.
Okay, so I finished this book a couple weeks ago, two days after it came out (because yes, I bought it the day of its release at Costco so I didn’t have to wait for shipping if I pre-ordered 😂), but I haven’t written a review. The reason for that is, I always think writing reviews for more popular books isn’t in that high of a demand, because isn’t everyone else also writing a review? But, my last review for Shadow and Bone seemed popular, and I consider that a “popular” book too. So maybe I should rethink things. Or just post a review even if there are lots of reviews, because my views are important too! 😉 Right?
